This photograph is a part of the online photography exhibit “Form and Landscape,” a collaborative project from William Deverell and Greg Hise. In this exhibit, Deverell and Hise share some of the more than 70,000 photos currently held by The Huntington Library in their Southern California Edison archive. These archives document the electrification of the greater Los Angeles area, with photographs taken across California from the late nineteenth century to the 1970s. This photograph appears in a virtual gallery with comments by Catherine Opie.

“…we often search for the personal within a sea of images, and the acknowledgement of how important images are in mapping history.” ~Catherine Opie
